Shrila Prabhupada Teachings-Quotes 💐💐💐


Dr Thoudam Singh: Scientists are worried about energy sources, and now they are working to utilize solar energy for cooking, lighting, and various other purposes. They are hoping that when they exhaust all other energy sources, they will be able to use solar energy. Śrīla Prabhupāda said: This is not a very new theory. Everyone knows that because the roots of trees store the sun’s energy, it is possible to get fire from a tree. These scientists are tiny creatures, but they are very proud. We don’t give them credit, because they are simply stating what everyone knows. As soon as you cut a tree, you cannot get fire from it. It has to be dried in the sun. When the energy is gathered from the sun, the tree can be utilized for fire. Actually everything is being maintained by the sun’s energy, but the scientists don’t know where the sun’s energy comes from. In the Bhāgavad Gita: 15:12) Krsna says: yad aditya-gatam tejo jagad bhasayate ‘khilam yac candramasi yac cagnau tat tejo viddhi mamakam “The splendour of the sun, which dissipates the darkness of this whole world, comes from Me. And the splendour of the moon and the splendour of fire are also from Me.” Again, Krsna says, jyotisam ravir amsuman: “Of lights I am the radiant sun.” (Bg. 10.21) Also, in the Eleventh Chapter of the Bhāgavad Gita Arjuna tells Krsna, sasi-surya-netram: “The sun and moon are among Your great, unlimited eyes.” This knowledge is contained in the Bhāgavad Gita, but scientists cannot attain this knowledge by their speculation. Can they? Dr Thoudam Singh: It is not possible. Śrīla Prabhupāda said: And what is their knowledge? The scriptures say that even if you counted all the grains of sand on earth, you still would not be able to understand God. All this material counting does not mean that you have the capacity to understand the unlimited. But it is even beyond their capacity to count all the material things. Why are the scientists so proud of their energy and capacities? They do not even know of the material things, and what to speak of the spiritual. As far as scientists and other living entities are concerned, their knowledge is limited. But this is not so for Krsna. If we receive knowledge from Krsna, that knowledge is perfect. In the scriptures we receive information that there are nine hundred thousand species of life existing within the ocean. The information given in the scriptures is exact, because it comes from Krsna, and as Krsna Himself says: “As the Supreme Personality of Godhead, I know everything that has happened in the past, all that is happening in the present, and all things that are yet to come.” (Bhāgavad Gita: 7:26) Back to Godhead Magazine-Finding Spiritual Solutions To Material Problems-The Tiny World Of Modern Science —
